Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor among top 5 players entering a contract year

Tyrod Taylor came in at No. 5 on the list.

NFL Live recently put together a list of the Top 5 NFL players entering their contract year and Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor made the cut at No. 5.


In a bit of a surprise, the ESPN show had Chandler Jones first among all players. Jones will be playing his contract year on a new team in Arizona and will be moving from defensive end to linebacker. Behind Jones, were Kawann Short, Tyrann Mathieu, Le'Veon Bell, and Taylor.

Seeing Taylor listed over Drew Brees is a bit of a surprise but the Bills QB played very well in his first season as Buffalo's starter and has a lot riding on the 2016 year. If the quarterback repeats his 2015 performance or improves upon it, he'll be set for a major pay raise in 2017 and beyond. 

Do you agree with Taylor being in the Top 5 over Brees? Who are your Top 5 NFL players entering free agency? Talk about it in the Rockpile Forum!
